Please do not post in this thread, PM me instead... Thanks in advance
So this idea I got in part from The Little Mermaid:
Arielle, or Ari, as she is known to friends is spending a weekend in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. While there, her friends dare her to go to a so called crazy voodoo witch who could predict her future/make her dreams come true. Ari is of course skeptical of the woman but decides just for the hell of it she will do it....
So in goes Ari to talk to the Voodoo witch and their conversation begins. Ari is quite amused at the Voodoo witch and snickers a few too many times to the woman's liking before the woman tells Ari to either tell her what she wants or gets out.
Ari: "okay... fine. I want to fall in love, in real true love. Head over heels, love at first sight love..... Can you do that?" She asks with a smirk.
"Ah, love... what everyone asks for... Tell me, girl. Just how do you think you can fall in love at first sight? Hmmm?"
Ari shrugs.... "I'll just know. When I look at that person, I will feel it.. all the way down to my soul... I just want to be in awe... you know... blown away..... just.... just..."
"Speechless?" The woman suggests.
Ari just nods, and snickers "yeah, that... that's how I will know."
The woman just cackles, blows some glitter towards Ari and then waves her away, "Your wish is my command, dearie."
Once Ari gets back outside, she has her friends laughing so hard they are in tears as she mocks the 'crazy' lady. The girls enjoy their weekend and then go home, Ari thinks nothing more of the lady until 3 years later. By now Ari has successfully finished college and is running her own web designing company. It's still small but thanks to friends, and friends of friends of friends, she's able to make a decent living. She loves what she does and being able to be her own boss, setting her own hours. Today, it's a particularly nice day out and she decides to go for a walk from her downtown condo to the coffee shop on the corner. She's not really paying attention to where she is going because for a moment she's distracted by a cabbie arguing with a man standing on the street. After snickering over the spat, she looks forward again and sees a woman that stops Ari dead in her tracks. The woman seems slightly older than Ari and is just gorgeous. Ari, being one who's always been quite bold immediately makes a move to go tell the woman so. Fixated on the woman, Ari doesn't even notice the man walking beside the woman and ends up crashing into him and embarrassingly falling backwards after knocking his iced coffee all over his white shirt. Before she can apologize and as she stands, the woman asks her if she is okay as the man begins to berate her. Ari turns first to the woman to answer her question but as she opens her mouth to speak, nothing comes out.... and so she realizes two things 1. The crazy voodoo lady really did curse her and 2. this woman was the love of her life.
So obviously, I am looking for the woman Arielle sees to write this out with, to see if Ari can get the woman to fall for her even while being mute. If interested shoot me a PM and we can discuss more details. :)
